The San Diego Italian Film Festival Presents: Euforia
Directed by Valeria Golino | 120 minutes
Acclaimed leading actors Riccardo Scamarcio and Valerio Mastandrea play Matteo and Ettore, two adult brothers living drastically different lives, in actor-director Valeria Golino’s quietly wrenching new drama. When Ettore, a public-school teacher and father of modest means, is diagnosed with a serious illness, he goes to stay with cosmopolitan Matteo in his sprawling Roman bachelor pad, and Matteo takes charge of overseeing his brother’s medical care. Between appointments with doctors and visits from Ettore’s wife and his lover, the brothers reckon with long-unresolved tensions and resentments, and face the implications of Ettore’s failing health, against the backdrop of the sunny Roman cityscape. Premiered at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival as “Un Certain Regard.”
Attendees will also enjoy a screening of the short film Postcard (7 minutes) by Giulio Guerrieri.
